to be pouring into swing districts across america. not just from michael bloomberg but obviously from gabby giffords' efforts and others. and you're going to see whatever money the nra spends in 2014 you'll see that double, triple, quadrupled from people who support sensible gun control. so what once was the safe vote in a lot of districts is no longer going to be the safe vote. and i can tell you, chris, i know a thing or two about politics. republicans got angry with me over the past year when i told them mitt romney was in trouble. i can tell you something. in 2014 in my district in northwest florida, a district jerry caldwell well called the most conservative in america, there's no doubt this would be the right move for me to run as a fiscally conservative republican, a pro-life republican who has said enough to survivalists and extremists. the second amendment is about protecting our homes and hunting with our friends and family members. it's not about military-styled assault weapons that ended up killing, you know, 6-year-old and 7-year-old kids in connecticut. >> i'm on your side. th

had equivalent power and you have things like michael bloomberg saying i will spend money, the same money the nra is spending. the pressure is different and i think the democrats and republicans who sort of have been in the nra camp are feeling pressure they never felt before. the nra doesn't have the power they used to. by the way, they didn't do that well. the candidates they supported during the election, their margin wasn't very good. >> and reading lapierre's comments, they weren't necessarily as incendiary when he really defended the rights of people -- the message is the same but the way he's saying is a little more subdued. >> it goes to our point here, they are under pressure. they are at attack with president obama with the security of his daughters back fired horribly. the audience is the hard core ar-15 owner, it's those in the middle that support gun rights but support gun safety and oppose crime. i think again, there is some pressure here on the nra to put more of a foot forward that can appeal to people beyond their core membership. >> let me bring in kentucky congres
co-founded by new york city's mayor michael bloomberg. i want to play a little clip of that ad. >> 20 heart broken families, i know how much it hurts. my 9-year-old daughter was murdered in the tucson shooting. i have one question for political leaders, when will you find the courage to stand up to the gun lobby? whose child has to die next? >> i think a lot of people will be shocked to know there has been 11 mass shootings since tucson and so many of us who were there and covered it well thought, one of their own was shot something will change. do you think newtown will be the impetus for change? >> most definitely. the president was met with vice president biden and they are working on a plan and i'm very very confident that something will be done. >> i know you've been following what mayor bloomberg was doing and he was on "morning joe" to talk about his efforts to ban assault weapons. >> nobody is trying to take away your gun or take away your right to go hunting or target shooting or have protection in your home. simply they are trying to have reasonable things so people aren't k
to this jewish. so there's a great chance to do things and one of them is common sense. >> new york's michael bloomberg, long-time gun control advocate. he'll be speaking at your convention tomorrow. let me see what he said about the challenge ahead. >> the hard work begins now. you don't force congress to act, you convince congress that it's in this country's interest. and i think most congress people and most senators will be responsive. >> you also say the conversation that's going on in the rest of the country is different from what you hear in washington and yet the nra is very interconnected to people out in the country, they have a tremendous successful network of getting people to act and they s said they're gearing up for the fight of the century. >> if you really want to talk about lobbying groups, i'll tell you a lobbying group. the sad fact of the matter is, in every congressional district in this country there's at least one, and sadly many people who have been involved in gun violence. the nra has many members, i have no argument with them. i have a challenge with the leadership
michael bloomberg is also out pushing the message saying the upcoming debate is one gun control activists can win. >> there are some legislators who think differently or they think that their careers would be limited if they go against the nra. i don't happen to think that's true. the nra was notoriously unsuccessful in the last election term. i create a little pac, and we went against four nra members, in three cases the opponent won. you can beat the nra. >> while the white house task force led by vice president joe biden is considering an array of measures to combat the problem, including reinstating the assault weapons ban, banning high capacity magazines, requiring background and mental health checks, opponents to any changes in the nation's gun laws are using a familiar refrain. >> within minutes we saw politicians run out and try to exploit this tragedy, try to push their political agenda of gun control. >> meanwhile, the chief obstacle to any weapons reform of any kind ever, the nra, stands by this prescription. >> the only way to stop a monster from killing our kids is to be pers

michael bloomberg. they're raising a lot of money. one thing i want to point out is that gabby giffords' new group, the americans for responsible solutions has gotten a $1 million donation from a couple in texas and trial lawyers there who were politically active. do you think this type of money and this type of support can beat the nra at its own game? >> i don't think it's a matter of plague partisan politics or anti-nra. i think every american wants to make sure that we have schools that are safe and that our kids are protected no matter what and any cause, and i don't think it's a matter of liberal, moderate or conservative in this matter because it's about human beings and about americans because american lives are at rick. if any of these groups can find a way for the violence to top taking place and the loss of life of young people in schools that's a good thing and i think everybody would be happy and support it because we all want to see it end. >> so that's your approach and someone who from the right has their perspective, but i want to play for everybody what the nra, presid

michael bloomberg who said we're not going to go directly at the nra necessarily. we're going to hit the soft spots. retailers who are sensitive to public opinion, sensitive to potential boycotts. cities are a huge consumer of the gun product, so if cities say, you know what, to the gun manufacturers, well, we are going to use our buying power to make you curb to our wishes, that is a lot more powerful than simply saying we want more gun control. >> ben, before you got here, while you were being -- while you were strip-searched in a busy hallway, we talked about the fact that 45% of gun owners favor gun safety reform. i mean, that -- it's one thing to say the public, right, but the fact that there are contich went -- the nra has constituents that want to see sort of tighter control on, let's say, semi-automatic assault weapons, would seem to suggest that they, too, could come out and maybe use their power to change things. >> i think that's what nobody has quite figured out is how to make them care as much about the regulations as the other 55% care about not having them. i think it
account that the nra has always outspend the gun control. now we have michael bloomberg involved and now we have steve jobs' widow happening out with gabby giffords pac. finally the gun control side has money. >> the risk of congressional inaction -- just one moment -- >> every day people see us on this show, martin, and they say how wonderful it is that the martin bashir show is focusing on this issue. toure's point is exactly right. if you care about this issue, tell us you care about it by writing a check to one of the great organizations, the mayors group, there's about half a dozen groups that are doing important work. i intend to write a check for them and everybody watching who is interested and concerned about protecting our children and protecting your families and protecting your communities, you have to support these organizations that are doing important work. >> and your original point is absolutely right. the martin bashir point is wonderful. >> thank you. >> yes. >> but the risk of congressional action has prompted some mayors to start taking action. michael nutter of phil
